PARIS—Safic-Alcan, an international specialty chemicals distributor, will partner with Arkema for the distribution of its Siliporite molecular sieves brand range of applications.
Arkema and Safic-Alcan, following extensive discussions, now say they will "negotiate and finalize a distribution agreement" for the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Nordics, Russia, Greece and Southeast Asia. Both companies are based near Paris.
Additional countries could be added at a later date.
The deal will include Siliporite, "which provides engineering polyurethane excellence for a wide range of applications, acting by removing residual moisture often present in polyol, solvents or fillers to prevent water from reacting with isocyanate groups," the companies said.
